THURSDAY: See newest plan for Admiral’s biggest project before it goes to Design Review


ORIGINAL REPORT, MONDAY 8:47 PM: Instead of meeting on the usual night this month, which would be tomorrow, the Admiral Neighborhood Association plans a special meeting this Thursday (February 16th), 7 pm, with a special agenda – the first look at the newest plan for the biggest project currently in the works for the area. That’s the planned mixed-use project on the current PCC Natural Markets (WSB sponsor) site, with a new PCC store planned as the commercial tenant beneath more than 100 apartments. ANA president Larry Wymer says the meeting will also be at a special location – likely the classroom space at PCC (2749 California SW) – watch for location confirmation here in the next day or so. The project goes back to the Southwest Design Review Board on March 2nd, as first reported here last month, but first, the project team, led by Hewitt Architects, plans to present it to ANA and all interested community members, so save Thursday night.

UPDATE, TUESDAY AFTERNOON: The location for the meeting will be St. John the Baptist Church parish hall, 3050 California SW (across from PCC and just south of WSHS). Enter either from the church entrance on the north side, or from 42nd SW on the east side.

    Light rail first then more growth. The West Seattle Bridge is a parking lot. Do people really want to wait for 30 minutes to get 20 blocks to the store.  Drive around Ballard during Rush hour. That’s what this will bring!

      I totally concur!  We’ve needed more exits out of WS for years and yet the growth continues with no transportation plans in place for the near future…WTH!

    Can you imagine trying to find a parking lot at PCC knowing there are 100 apartments above it.  Where do you think all the tenants and their visiting friends will decide to park?!  Oh wait….the City says the future has no cars.

      The current surface lot on the southwest side of the property is staying, and there will be underground parking too. Combining a grocery store with a residential building is not unusual – for example, there’s the Junction QFC, which has dedicated parking for the store, and while we are not frequent shoppers there, we’ve been there more than a few times, and haven’t ever been unable to find a space. But if you have concerns, please be at Thursday’s meeting, because it’s an even better chance to ask questions and raise concerns than the March 2nd Design Review meeting. – TR

     Will be a busy spot, with all the daily deliveries in addition to more people.

      Daily deliveries won’t change. The PCC is already on site. This will be a smart use for what is currently a heat island lot with so much more potential.

Sorry, comment time is over.
